Our winner is Catherine!
I hate the phrase “not your grandmother’s knitting” and yet I’m tempted to say the patterns in New Vintage Lace by Andrea Jurgrau are not your grandmother’s doilies. Except they might be. Sort of.
These projects are inspired by vintage lace doilies and other classic projects, reinterpreted into modern shawls and hats.
The patterns are pretty, though a lot of them are pretty involved (and though the book includes some introductory information, I wouldn’t recommend it to completely new lace knitters) they’d make a great challenge for those looking to boost their lace knitting skills or for people who just love lace shawls and need to knit a few more.
If you’d like a chance to win this book (I have one copy) add a comment to this post before the end of the day Sunday, July 27. If you want, tell me if you’re a lace shawl fanatic, if you dabble in the craft or if you’re new to that kind of knitting. I’ll pick a winner at random whenever I remember to.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing! Good luck.
